Appropriately for the on-set of the “silly season”, our 2015 season will end with a very silly play indeed. But we mean that in a good way. This is a farcial paradoy of the 1920s pulp hero Bulldog Drummond, the central character in a series of crime novels that also spawned a series of silent films. Let’s “put you in the picture”.

The villains, Count Otto Von Brunno and Lenya von Brunno plan to ruin the international diamond market by kidnapping Professor Rupert Fenton. The heroes, Hugh 'Bullshot' Crummond and Rosemary Fenton, the professor's daughter, set out to thwart their evil intent. So begins a fast pace comic romp that lurches from bizarre to the outrageous. Perfect theatre to fit the festive season

The Globe TheatreThe Globe is where New Zealand's best known poet, James K Baxter, had his first plays produced.

This 'theatre in a house' was created in 1961 by Patric and Rosalie Carey when they extended the living room of their house in London Street into an auditorium, converting it into a small, 30 seat theatre which they called The Globe. This was later modified into the 80 seat theatre which exists today. The Careys were active in promoting both classical and new theatre to Dunedin audiences. The theatre was the first in Australasia, for example, to mount a production of Beckett's Waiting for Godot. At the same time, there were regular performances of works by Shakespeare, Sophocles, Moliere, Ibsen and others.

Rosalie and PatricThe Careys also promoted the works of New Zealand playwrights such as R A K Mason and James K Baxter, both of whom were Burns Fellows at the University of Otago.

The Careys retired in 1973 but the theatre and its traditions continue, under the watchful care of the Incorporated Society known as the Friends of the Globe Theatre.

An audience in the foyerWhile the theatrical environment in Dunedin has changed considerably since the 1960s, the wishes of many people to see and/or participate in amateur theatre which is produced to high standards has not changed. If you too would like to become involved in the workings of this theatre in any capacity, on stage, behind the scenes or simply as an audience member who is given a discount on admission, do consider becoming a member of the Friends of the Globe.
